The People’s Constitution

The People’s Constitution

Who wrote the Constitution? That’s obvious, we think: 55 men in Philadelphia in 1787. But much of the Constitution was actually written later, in a series of 27 amendments enacted over the course of two centuries. Join the Brennan Center’s Wilfred Codrington and John Kowal as they discuss their new book, The People’s Constitution: 200 Years, 27 Amendments, and the Promise of a More Perfect Union.

This event is produced in partnership with the National Parks of New York Harbor Conservancy at Federal Hall.

    We really enjoyed The People’s Constitution, and thought it was cogent, compelling, activating, and energizing!
